98 ford taurus get stuck in 2nd gear


Well first you will need to have the transmission diagnosed, if it is in need of a rebuild you might as well junk the car as the rebuild will cost more than the car is most likely worth.

90 ford Taurus 3.0 SOH. engine rattles or shimmies in third and overdrive gear automatic especially when going uphill. When i accelerate it stops or smoothes out. I checked the diagnostic codes and nothing...


Guess I'd have to agree with you. Sounds like the gears might be going bad. But, you might want to check your motor and transmission mounts to see if they are worn and causing the shimmy.

FORD TAURUS SE 1998 SURGE IN POWER AND WHEN DRIVING IF U TAKE UR FOOT OFF THE GAS IT DIES


This is not the only problem.

Do the doors also fail to lock when the vehicle starts to move?
Does it fail to shift properly and tends to stay in low gears?
Overdrive function Fails to work?

RECOMENDATION: sight unseen.

Replace speed sensor.


Engine does not know it is moving and puts the engine back to an idle when it should be stepping down the engine speed.

Hope this tip helps.
